the massachusetts health care law. the same law that become the framework for the affordable care act. i don't remember conservatives complaining about the law then. back then everyone was all smiles, even this guy. a top official at the conservative think tank, the heritage foundation. look how happy he is. but now suddenly the heritage foundation is the group leading the charge against the president's health care law. it's even supported senator ted cruz's anti-obama care tour this summer. and today senator cruz continued that crusade at the headquarters for the heritage foundation. >> it is a particular privilege being here at heritage, heritage plays such an important role in helping articulate and defend conservative principles across this country. and in no fight has that been more apparent than in the fight over obama care. >> but republicans were on the other side of that fight just a few years ago. they've completely flip-flopped. now the whole right wing is against it. why? because president obama is for it. but he's come too far to back down now. >> and if if was hard doing it jus
the entire law. today republican leaders made that clear. >> you know, the problem with obama care isn't just the website. it's the whole law. >> and the bottom line is the problems with obama care run deeper than just the website. >> hear that? this isn't about the website glitches. it's about scrapping the whole thing. never mind that 17 million children with pre-existing conditions are now covered. never mind that insurance premiums are 16% lower than expected. the gop wants all this to wither on the vine. and they're offering no alternatives of their own. and today democratic congressman bill pasquel called them out on it. >> including the one i'm the coo sponsor of. >> are you serious what you just said? are you really serious? after what we have gone through and what we have gone through in the last three and a half years. you can sit there and say that you had a legitimate alternative after these years? we've gone through 44 votes, 48 votes now, of you trying to dismantle the legislation. you call that cooperation? i don't. >> wow. that's an amazing moment. this law is important. it's
, remember when a texas lawmaker filibustered a strict new abortion law only to have the legislature pass it anyway in a special session? well, a u.s. district judge just threw that law out. good afternoon, everyone. welcome to "the lead." i'm jake tapper. in the national lead, we begin by asking of the president those two questions that always seem to go hand in hand. what did he know and when did he know it. regarding the nsa tapping the phones of nearly three dozen world leaders. add president obama himself to the list of those surprised to learn it was going on. a senior administration official tells me president obama did not learn until recently of the nsa surveillance of other world leaders including allies, confirming a report that first appeared in this morning's "wall street journal," citing u.s. officials that the white house did not know until an internal review over the summer after which it ended some of those programs. the senior administration official tells me the program that monitored the phone of german chancellor angela merkel did not end until quite recently. the whi
, found buried in the 2010 language of the law, an estimate that because of normal turnover, normal turnover in the individual insurance market, 40 to 67% of customers will not be able to keep their policy. developments comes as the head of the government agency in charge of the health care.org. the website has been grilled for hours. there have been heated moments including democrat congressman bill pascrell of new jersey, accusing of his republican counterparts of refusing to help people sign up for the law the way democrats helped in the part of medicare part d eight years ago. >> we went back to districts and told seniors, although we voted no, we personally believe and will work with the bush administration to make it work. that's what we did. and how many of you stood up to do that? none. zero. zero. let's talk. let's not water the wine here. let's say it like it is. >> let me bring in "washington post" national political reporter malia henderson and wendell potter. we'll have congressman pascrell in a second. but let's start with the admission from steny hoyer that some polic
moment dozens of senate republicans are expected to vote against a gay rights law that would ban discrimination against gay and lesbian employees in the workplace. that's 39 republicans who didn't get the memo. why? because they haven't learned anything. what about women's rights? republican senator lindsey graham is now launching a new fight against a woman's right to choose. calling for a 20-week abortion ban. >> i've been a pro-life member of congress since day one. i'm proud to lead this charge. >> todd akin was once proud to lead this charge. how'd that work out? again, they haven't learned anything. and this extreme ideology is particularly bad. look at virginia. the republican candidate for governor ken cuccinelli is as far right as they come. he thinks same-sex relationships are immoral, wants to ban abortions with no exception, and once said it's possible the president was born in kenya. and he's plunging in the polls. 12 points behind. so why is that? president obama was in virginia over the weekend with the answer. >> you've seen on extreme faction of the republican pa
. the supreme court rejecting oklahoma's appeal to reinstate its strict law banning medical abortions, specifically those performed with the drug ru486 known as the abortion pill. the court initially agreed to take up the appeal this spring but later asked oklahoma's court to clarify what the law covered. the court responded by saying the measure effectively bans all medical abortions. that apparently wasn't enough for justices and now oklahoma's supreme court decision avoiding the law will remain intact. pete williams joins us live. this is one of a number of abortion related cases and high court is expected to consider soon. >> right, but consider the importance of what the court did here. as a technical legal matter, what the supreme court did here today, no presidential value and expressed no view on the laws and said we're not going to hear this case after all. consider the fact in the spring when it looked like enthuse law in oklahoma was to restrict not to ban the use of ru486 and one other pill for medicinal purposes the supreme court was willing to look at that. oklahoma said
, it is the same law that now texas gubernatorial candidate wendy davis filibustered this year. the author of the decision, appointee of president george w. bush. and then yesterday the d.c. circuit took aim at obama care and found private employers can refuse to provide health plans that give access to birth control under the affordable care act. the authority of that decision, justice rogers-brown. another bush w. appointee. judge brown, if employers oppose birth control on religious grounds, what about viagra? but i digress. brown and owen are not just any appointees but both put on the bench in 2005 after only a two-year democratic delay of their nominations. republicans threatened the use the nuclear option to vote them through with a simple majority. that led to something that we rarely hear about, a deal. seven democrats, seven republicans. the gang of 14. they came together and decided from then on judicial nominees would only be filibustered under extraordinary circumstances. ideology not being one of them and that is the deal that put both brown and owen on the bench. leaving us
told the truth to americans about his health care law going back to the campaign. >> when he was trying to get the law passed, repeatedly said, if you currently have health insurance, you'll be able to keep your plan. this morning, david axelrod was pressed on that point and said the majority, the vast majority, would get to keep their plans. he no longer works at the white house. from that podium, will you admit when the president said, if you have a plan, you'll get to keep it, that was not true? >> it's true there are existing health care plans on the individual market that don't meet those minimum standards and therefore do not qualify for the affordable care act. >> greg, i want to talk about ridicule. when your policy or your campaign or your candidate becomes the target of ridicule on "saturday night live," have you a huge problem on your hands? >> i don't really think so. i think -- i feel like the joke is on us for laughing. oh, finally, the cool ki are now seeing what all the dorks have been seeing for two years and we're supposed to be grateful for this one little, you know,
to be in panic mode. they are firing out about the president's explicitly clear health care law which did not turn out to be true. promise, if you like your plan, if you like your doctor you can keep them. we heard it over and over and over again. fact, over ten, perhaps as many as 15, perhaps more million people will lose their plans. and perhaps their doctors. and this administration knew it at the very time the president promised us otherwise. tonight, we investigate how the president's signature legislative achievement has come to shock and distress millions of americans tonight instead of helping them. we'll show you exactly why millions of americans are being kicked off of their insurance plans at this moment. and what happens if they cannot get insurance before their current plans expire. are these people going to be left uncovered? wouldn't that be ironic? we'll investigate why the administration is now putting all the blame on the insurance companies, should it have foreseen that they would act in this manner? did they lay the groundwork that would essentially force them to act i
between the lines there. and did the republicans or and did they make an agreement and get the law changed just yet? >> i don't think so. i think that really what will get the law changed ultimately it is failing all over the place. additional stories out today about lack of quality coverage and lack availability. and poor quality in coverage. people living in major cities that are not going to be able to get coverage in the local hospitals because of the way the exchanges are working or not working. the fact that so many people are paying attention to this and if it is not you, someone you know will lead members of congress and democrats will look for additional solutions and be open to things they were not open to six weeks ago. >> and a leading democrat in the house said the law needed to be more precise. and we are watching the democrats and seeing how they move. they will exact the change if there is any to comprehend. see you soon from washington ally. >>> right now house republicans are getting a briefing on the obama care roll out. they are meeting with mike hash, and we are monito

necessarily knowing that there are security laws, privacy laws place to protect people. >> reporter: there's no telling how many consumers may have received information. a hole has been highlighted that has lawmakers worried about high-tech hackers. >> you have criminals trying to get information that is now available on these websites. >> reporter: until the site is secu secure, rogers think it should be taken down. >> i felt and i said this directly to the president's chief of staff, they ought to take down the website until it was right. >> reporter: tom's now pleading with his congressional delegation to help lock down the compromised data. but he says his problem isn't with d.c. >> i've got no political ax to grind. i just want my information off of this website. >> reporter: this afternoon, republican south carolina senator lindsey graham's office says they are working to help tom. over the weekend, we learned that for now, healthcare.gov is not a 24-hour-a-day website and that applications will be unavailable every day from 1:00 a.m. till 5:00 a.m. eastern and maybe longer. >> peter

plans before the affordable care act became law and you really liked that plan, you are able to keep it. that's what i said when i was running for office. that was part of the promise we made. but ever since the law was passed, if insurers decided to downgrade or cancel these substandard plans, what we said under the law is, you have to replace them with quality comprehensive coverage because that too was a central premise of the affordable care act from the very beginning. jon: senior white house foreign affairs correspondent bowl goal is live outside the -- wendell goler is live outside the white house. wendell. >> reporter: as you heard the president say part of the reason for obamacare to get rid of what he called substandard insurance plans sold primarily on individual market which covers 5% of the country. though the president's focus back in 2009 seemed to be expanding health insurance coverage to people who didn't have any insurance, press secretary jay carney essentially says that it makes no essential to replace no insurance with inadequate health insurance. >> no hospitalizat

shortcomings in the same place where the successful massachusetts health care law got its start. but he says romney care also had a pretty rocky beginning. health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius finally takes her turn in the hot seat, grilled for hours about the obama care website. >> you deserve better. i apologize. i'm accountable for you for fixing these problems. >> and the national security agency pushing back against allegations that it penetrated google and yahoo! data centers while european you're pea a eur against u.s. claims that everybody spies. you're in the situation room. sebelius got a drilling today. president obama got out of town. he just gave a spirited defense of his health care law this boston where former rival mitt romney signed a very similar and successful massachusetts law less than a decade ago. our chief congressional correspondent dana bash is standing by on capitol hill, but let's begin our coverage with our chief white house correspondent jim acosta. the president said he's responsible for obama care's flaws, but he also said that romney care als
of a republican effort before the health care bill became law of the land to push back on this presidential sales pitch. >> if you like your health care plan, you'll be able to keep your health care plan, period. no one will take it away no matter what. >> reporter: that was the summer of 2009 during the heat of the health care legislative battle and so was this. >> on the is it stump the president says if you like your plan you can keep your plan but if you read the bill, that just isn't so. for starters within five years, every health care plan will have to meet a new federal definition for coverage. one that your current plan might not match even if you like it. >> reporter: fast forward three years, that is exactly what is happening. insurance companies are dropping americans all across the country from their health plans many because policies don't have coverage now required under obama care. democrats trying to calm concerned constituents call it a good thing. >> if we don't enforce this policy, insurance companies can continue offering flimsy coverage that disappears when people actually n
:20 this morning from multiple witnesses, and law enforcement officials, reportedly a man with a gun goes up to one of the checkpoints, a rifle, starts opening fire. reports are so far that at least two people have been shot but it's still unclear how many. we also saw several people being loaded into ambulances, including what look to be a tsa agent, also according to witnesses multiple shots fired, nick pugh told us he was on the upper mezzanine and heard eight to ten shots that were fired and two separate moments. everybody just ducked to the ground. >> dropped to the floor. >> in fear, people afraid to run because they didn't have any place to go. if you went down you were going towards the incident and didn't know if there was anything coming from outside. >> i believe we have another witness joining us now on the phone. tom, are you joining us? >> yes, i'm here. >> tom, tell us what you saw. where you were when this took place. >> i was in terminal three the virin america terminal and you could hear shots, popping sounds, people started running from the center area of the terminal out towards
and taken into custody. he's reported to be in critical condition in the hospital. law enforcement sources tell the l.a. times that authorities found a note next to the shooter in which he expressed, quote, his disappointment with the government. nbc news reporting that the shooter sent a suicidal text to his family before entering the airport where he apparently started shooting. again, though, the shooter is alive in critical condition and in custody. l.a.x. is a mess in terms of flight cancellations and delays and thousands of passengers getting stranded. this is a story we'll be following through the night as we learn more. please keep watching this space for news. >>> here's the background, when george w. bush picked harriet players, he was showing his trademark loyalty. he was also particularly happy to have found a woman he trusted for that job since the seat she was going to be filling on the court would be the one vacated by the retiring justice sandra day o'connor. now the harriet miers nomination didn't work out. she pulled her name. outside conservative groups had weighed in ag
year like everyone else? >> sir, the way the law is written -- >> yes or no. say you're wrong, on that, yes or no, will you, yes or no. >> i will not give disinformation to the american public. >> you what? >> i don't want to get disinformation. >> i want you to do research, if you're wrong will you go into the exchanges -- >> if you can will you? that's a yes or no? if you can will you? >> i will take a look at it. >> that is not an ends. >> marsha blackburn was also on the committee asking why obamacare should be allowed to decide what plan is best for americans. we'll talk to her a little later this hour. there is word from the white house today that it is satisfied with the testimony brought kathleen sebelius yesterday. what do you think? were you satisfied? @marthamaccallum, @billhemmer. that is our twitter question of the day. martha: their story right now, bill, clearly you just have to wait. some of you will get subsidies you don't realize you're going to get. the these gaps being dropped on your policy and successfully being able to get one. they're urging caution, hold, hold,
signature law today. >> i'm confident these marketplaces will work. because massachusetts has shown that the model works. yes, this is hard. the health care system is a big system. and it is complicated. and if it was hard doing it just in one state, it is harder to do it in all 50 states. especially when the governors of a bunch of states and half of the congress are not trying to help. yeah. it is hard, but it is worth it. >> the president was in boston trying to reboot the conversation around the new health law. house republicans were back in washington hard at work investigating the law's troubled debut. >> once again, here we have my republican colleagues trying to scare everybody. >> will the gentleman yield? >> no, i will not yield to this monkey court. >> today, the monkey court was back in session. this time with health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius fielding the questions. from congressmen eager to get to the bottom of the rocky health reform rollout. did you know, for example, that kathleen sebelius used to be governor of kansas? >> madam secretary, while
. countries will enact their own data laws. internet that we think is unbroken and open around the world i fear it will be segmented as countries have their own rules and own protections. >> about six years ago when the president was running, you know if he gets in there our reputation around the world will be so much better. everybody hates george w. bush. this is all we need for a brand new world. little did we know while he was giving that speech in berlin his people were bugging every office. think about the damage this has done and this is one more of those bush/cheney programs that this administration has taken to ridiculous lengths. >> the real world implications is massive. the damage has been done that's not just political but mic economically. the idea that the president doesn't know about these things over and over again -- i imagine people think it's a better explanation than saying he did know. that's hard for me to see how it's a positive. if that is true that's alarming. given that they are arguing this wholesale review we have not heard a revamp of this from the president.
and since three years after its a law they are still fighting, can you imagine what it would be like if he said yeah, some people's rate wills go up. the thing passed by this much. if they said that, they might have lost the whole thing and politicians are always making compromises like that. for crying out loud, they made a compromise on slavery. >> when -- >> began -- >> when i see the president of the united states repeatedly including the state of the union assuring the american people you want to keep your doctor, plan, you will. he said it again and again and again. now we know that senior members in the very administration knew all along, they have known for three years, probably at least 50% of the people that applied, that would not apply. they would have to change their plan. that's a bare faced lie and i think somebody supportive of obama care. i come from a country that -- >> again, let's look at the perspective again on this. why did we do this? why did we -- why did obama -- a lot of people when they got into office said he made a big mistake and should have went into the eco
. and step number two is getting information to folks that the law even exists. >> this is what is so, so important. big picture here, the young people. and many of them don't even know this law exists. and those who do know it exists are trying to logon to a website that doesn't always work. it young healthy people cannot or do not sign up for health insurance, can obama care be saved? with me from washington, two of the best a.b. stoddard, associate editor of the hill, and ryan lizza. hello to both of you again. >> hello, brooke. >> hello, hello. you both watches the hearing along with us. i want to ask what piqued your political interest in a minute. first, this is the list we wanted from you. three ways to save obama care. we asked you both for your prescriptions. a.b., i'm beginning with you first. taking a look at your list, you say fix the website. you say, increasesebelius. >> right, you say increase penalties for opted out, and number three, launch a p.r. campaign of obama care happy stories. a.b., let me hone in on this increasing penalties for opting out. what do you mean? >> w
appeals court reinstating most of a tough new abortion law in texas requiring doctors at clinic that is perform the procedure to have hospital admitting privileges. 12 of the 32 texas clinics do not comply with that. therefore they could be closed as early as today. the ruling comes just three days after a federal judge ruled the law unconstitutional. >> a bombshell new report revealing that some homeland security employees are fudging on their time sheets, claiming overtime while they sat at their desks and, you know, surfed the net. correspondent molly henneberg live in washington. molly, how long has this been going on? >> reporter: for years, gregg. federal investigators call it long-standing abuse of overtime payments this is happening specifically at department of homeland security. they have not got reports of paycheck padding at other agencies at this point, according to "the washington post." the controversy over something called administratively uncontrollable overtime or auo. it is meant to provide overtime pay for border patrol agents or others in the department who
, but i'll let the law enforcement folks talk about it directly. >> again, that was from the president. local law enforcement has spoken to authorities here a number of times today. it's been quite chaotic as you can imagine anytime you have a major shooting. this is the first shooting in l.a.x. since about 10, 11 years ago. very chaotic, a packed airport. a lot of travelers. people walking up from the thousands to go nowhere, try to find hotel rooms. when you talk to authorities, here's what they said happened and how valiant one officer was who went after the suspect. take a listen. >> this individual was shooting as he went into the terminal. the officers didn't -- i repeat, they didn't hesitate. they went after this individual, and they confronted this individual in our airport. and unfortunately, it involved an officer-involved shooting, but that's what needed to be done in that particular situation, and that was heroic. >> bret, two quick things. behind me, here's people waiting to get back in and take off again. some flights are moving at l.a.x. these are the people finally let
